Upcycled vintage textiles

I did some indigo dyeing last week and my neighbor's cat helped me with the photography.


  • I used Botanical Color's recipe for indigo and did some fold and clamp shibori technique dyeing on old linens

    Hi Peggy,

    Yes, I used indigo dye. I used the recipe from Botanical Colors. Have you worked with indigo? What formula or recipe did you use? I used to do a lot of natural dyeing on wool yarn and used ammonia and spectralite, which is not so environmentally friendly. This recipe is much better that way.

    These linens turned out beautifully.  Did you use indigo dye?
